Inlays & Onlays

Before & After Cases


Inlays & Onlays in Burbank, CA

Teeth that have got major defects or have been attacked by cavities that are not big enough to allow a crown can be conservatively restored with the help of an inlay or an onlay at DNA Dental Studio.


Onlays and inlays can be built of porcelain, composite resin, or gold. These pieces are placed on the damaged portion of the tooth. An inlay, which appears much like a filling, is used inside the cusp tips of your tooth. Whereas, an onlay is a more strong reconstruction, appears much like an inlay but outwardly extending over one or more of the cusps of the tooth.

However, these are only provided when there is not much tooth structure left to hold a filling. In such conditions, a filling will not work effectively. Inlays and onlays can also be given by the dentist if the tooth has not been highly damaged to warrant a crown. For tooth damage that comes somewhere in between, inlays and onlays can even help to save the tooth.



Onlays and inlays only need two appointments to finish the process. The initial visit will involve eliminating the decayed area of the tooth and creating a copy of that portion for the laboratory to design the final onlay or inlay followed by inserting a temporary restoration in order to seal the tooth.

At the second visit, the temporary sealant will be taken out. Dr. Dino & Dr. Angie will then ensure that an appropriate fit and feel of the onlay or inlay is rightly achieved. If the fit is totally satisfactory, the onlay or inlay will be fixed to the tooth with the help of a strong resin and polished to give a smooth finish.


When we check out the options to restore even one broken tooth, we prefer a conservative way. Thankfully, advanced dental materials enable us to reconstruct teeth to full function while preserving as much original tooth structure as possible. Traditional fillings can lessen the strength of an original tooth by up to 50 percent. As a great substitute, onlays and inlays, which are cemented directly onto the tooth with the help of special high-strength resins, can truly intensify the strength of a tooth by up to 75 percent. Therefore, they can stay from 10 to 30 years. When the most conservative approach fits your treatment plan, Dr. Dino and Dr. Angie may recommend an onlay.

I had amazing opportunity to work at DNA dental as a dental hygienist. Working alongside Dr Dino was something I will never forget. His kind, charismatic, and truthful personality are some qualities that make a good dentist a great one.
